I celebrated my 26th birthday today. It was a wonderful day. I went to the Calgary Stampede with my Mom and my friend. We spent the day shopping, eating and having a great time. The weather was beautiful with sunshine and blue skies. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

As I love attention any day of the week, but I especially love attention on my birthday. So I was decked out in my special birthday hat and earrings. I wasn’t disappointed as I received a lot of happy birthday wishes. I was even lucky enough to get the tax for free on an item I bought and I also had two rings cleaned for free instead of just one. Yay for free stuff!
I am so lucky to have so many wonderful people in my life. As well as celebrating today, I have actually celebrated for the past 2 days too. On Monday, I went out for dinner with some friends and we played a little bit of Poker afterward. There were 5 of us and it was the first time I had ever come in as one of the last 2 standing. I got to split the pot 50/50 because I tied for the win. 😳 Before we started our Poker game, we had a little play time with my friend’s adorable 10 month old boy. He’s so cute and loves to chew on everything. Peter even had some brief play time with him. I have never seen Peter hold a baby and so it definitely pulled at my maternal heartstrings seeing my husband with the little guy! I was freaking out a little bit when it happened. Haha, it must be a sign that we are almost ready for kids.
Wait, there’s MORE! Yesterday at work my co-workers surprised me with a Dairy Queen ice cream cake. It was delicious and unexpected. I wish I had taken a picture of it before we dug into it, but alas, I forgot. Oh well. Just think about the delicious cookie fudge in the centre and you’ll know what I mean when I say it was great.
Again, I am so fortunate to be surrounded by people who love and care about me. I look forward to getting older because I know I will always have these people in my life.
Oh! I knew I shared a birthday with Gale Harold (from Queer As Folk), but I had NO IDEA that I also shared my birthday with Thomas Ian Nicholas (from American Pie), Fiona Shaw (Aunt Dursley from Harry Potter), Sofía Vergara (from Modern Family), Adrian Grenier (from Drive Me Crazy) and Jessica Simpson. Yay! July 10th rocks.
